When I moved to the farm in Switzerland from Milan she was the first friend I made as she always walks by the farm with her lady dog Chaya.
Nathalie knows a lot about plants and food
She is my aunt and she lives, with her husband -my uncle- Aimone, half hour from Milan, in the town of Saronno, where the famous Amaretto is from.
She is a tireless baker and for her recipes she follows few famous Italian pasticcieri, but her absolute favourite is Luca Montersino, for which she has a culinary crush.
For this post I asked my very special friend Simona to cook for me this delicious cream that she made once for a party two years ago. It’s still the best Mascarpone cream I have ever had so I thought to dig into her secret recipe and indulge in a sweet afternoon in her company.
My friends Martina and Ric live in Zurich. She is a swiss miniature embroidery creative, he is a half computer geek, half hipster english man.
They just moved to their new house and they kindly invited us over for a nice Sunday lunch, on the warmest November day Switzerland has ever seen.
LOVE FRIENDS’ FOOD is my new monthly column dedicated to cooking with friends.
For the first post I went to Barcelona and cooked with a very dear Spanish friend.
His name is Fernando and I met him when I was living in London.
He is a very special guy
